I like activity. I like running, biking, hiking, exploring the woods and learning about mushrooms and edible/medicinal plants. I like non-fiction, spicy vegan food made by, with and for friends. I'm into polyamory. I'm an anarch@-feminist. I spend most of my down time caring for a rescue parrot named Olly.
I'm devoted to being the best possible friend I can be, to be emotionally generous as much as possible, to be patient and gentle and kind.
-committing to adventures
-making huge delicious meals for large groups of people
I read mostly non-fiction. I love radical people's histories. Vijay Prashad, Silvia Federici.
Non-Fiction: Por los caminos de Chalatenango. Yes Means Yes! How Non-Violence Protects the State. Possibilities. The Shock Doctrine. Cunt. The Second Sex. bell hooks, Kate Bornstein, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, INCITE! David Simon.
Fiction: Cat's Cradle. The God of Small Things. Lord of the Rings. Italo Calvino. Orwell, Ursula K. Le Guin. Roald Dahl.
I'm also a huge fan of comics! I grew up in a comic book shop. V for Vendetta and other Alan Moore stuff. Y, the Last Man. Usagi Yojimbo. The Walking Dead.
I really enjoy films where the underdogs win like Micmacs à tire-larigot, faggy John Waters and Almodóvar films, intensely political horror films, epics, documentaries about radical resistance movements and cultures, like Kanehsatake. I like Spaghetti Westerns, films about the Mexico/US Border, Miyazaki.
I haven't seen as many films as I'd like to.
My favorite album is Sam Cooke's 1964 Live at the Harlem Square Club. Besides that, I mostly listen to the music that my friends make. I'm into punk, hiphop, doom pop, hardcore, Nuyorican salsa, freak folk, Delta blues, bossa nova, roots & ruckus, bachata, rancheros, romanticas, anarchist metal, 80s-90s rockero, danceable hipster nonsense like matt and kim, crystal castles and passion pit and justice. ska, riot grrrrrrrl, phil elvram projects, perfume genius.
Hella vegan delicious everything. I love cooking.
